   This exhibition is a testament to the influence and inspiration of Santa Fe and New Mexico’s unique sense of place. Artists are inspired through cultural diversity, and awe-inspiring landscapes to produce works that ranges from realistic figurative to abstract works.

Opened in July 2013, the Orchard Gardens with an orchard of fruit trees as its centerpiece is the entry point for visitors. Flanked by a meadow garden and a dry garden the orchard will be surrounded by a rugged retaining wall on three sides as it nestles into the hillside.

     Most of the sculptures are in bronze, steel and stone media with half of the artists represented being of Native American decent. Also during the exhibit’s first several months, it will run concurrently with, “The Summer of Color” which is a collaborative show of all the institutions on Museum Hill, which is home to more than 200 galleries and over a dozen museums.

     Editor’s note: The show runs through May 1, 2016 and all artists in the exhibition are considered masters within their field. Their works are represented in museum and private collections internationally.
